Italian Citizenship


Italian Citizenship


Italian citizenship is currently regulated by Law no. 91/1992 (and regulations for its implementation: specifically DPR no. 572 of 12 October 1993 and DPR no. 362 of 18 April 1994) which, in contrast with previous laws, reassesses the importance of individual intention in the acquisition or loss of citizenship and recognises the right to hold more than one citizenship simultaneously.
Citizenship legislation applies to:
• persons born Italian who have lost their citizenship and wish to reinstate it;
• descendents of Italian citizens claiming citizenship;
• foreigners applying for Italian citizenship.
